Lakme India Fashion Week – Day 3 (22nd April, 2005)


Wendell Rodricks
This year Wendell presented a soft and serene line of clothes. So there were lots of soft aqua blues, sand beiges and muddy browns in his "Oceania" collection. For those looking for the sexy look, Wendell presented ultra short skirts and backless blouses. For the more conscious there were kurtas and empire line over shirts.

Aparna Chandra
The collection had a very summery feel-there were chanderis, cottons and linens in lots of whites. The collection was designed for the contemporary Indian woman who likes to be simple, yet wants to make a statement and be noticed. There were lots of off-white silver embellishment kurtas, off stretch kurtas short pin stripe shirts and full-sleeved shirts.

Shantanu and Nikhil
The designer duo's collection was a tribute to Sikh women. Women of this community are known to be strong-and this was skillfully depicted through the duos colour palette. Navy blue and grey were the primary colours in this collection. Soft fabrics like silks, georgettes and shifli, sprinkled with handloom polka-dotted zari, combined with masculine structures over balloon pants, churidars, flared shorts and the like. Chiffons, exaggerated drapes, wrap styles and bias cut skirts added a gentle touch to this collection.

Satya Paul
With a collection called Madonna Meets Sita -- meant to signify the marriage between the modern and the traditional -- Satya Paul's son Puneet Nanda unveiled a collection that was rich, deep and complete. The Satya Paul collection incuded dresses in beiges with a very strong Indian influence, full sequined choli-like tops, knee-length kurtas, skirts with strappy dresses worn underneath. Some of the underclothes had prints that looked like paint had been splashed on. There were also digital print saris and net saris and designs that Satya Paul is best known for-a heavily embellished net sari with a paint-splashed petticoat.

Manju and Bobby Grover
The collection was all about raw sexy appeal. There were bra tops and very short shorts among other garments. The first set of clothes had a very naturally muted colour palette. The next collection was bolder with the use of black and lots of gold.

Anita Dongre
The show started with lycra dresses adorned with gold foil symbols. There were long sleeved t-shirts and gold flock printed cotton Lycra dresses. From Lycra Anita moved to silks. It was a youthful collection with touches of Anita's style glamour.
